Defective Food Products and Containers
Food production companies have a responsibility to their customers to provide safe food products as well as containers that will not compromise the safety of the consumer in any way. When food manufacturing companies fail in these duties, they are putting innocent lives at risk of serious health problems such as allergic reactions and food-borne illnesses.
If you or someone you know has suffered because of a food company’s act of negligence, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, or other resulting hardships.

Consequences of Unsafe Food Products and Containers
Food products can become contaminated either during production or afterwards due to improper packaging. When food becomes infected with bacteria, parasites, or other pathogens, it can cause serious damage to a consumer, including food-borne illnesses such as:
- E. coli
Suffering from a food-borne illness can cause many unpleasant symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe dehydration. In some cases, these symptoms can become life-threatening.
Mislabeling of Food Products
Food manufacturers are responsible for providing consumers with important information on the food package’s label. Mislabeling or failure to properly label the item may cause an individual to ingest food that has expired or products that contain dangerous allergens for that person.
